Investing in your 2023 wardrobe? The white shirt has gotten a major makeover for the new season ahead, and these are the styles to invest in now

Few pieces are as important to a Scandinavian wardrobe as the white shirt, and for the upcoming year our local designers have given this staple an updated look. While a classic crisp cotton cut is always on our sartorial agenda, we're craving a closet update. Enter the elevated white shirt, with new and improved silhouettes, cocooning shapes and modernised crops, it is a fresh take on this timeless garment we're keen to incorporate in our daily rotations.

Take for instance cape-like slits in the arms of a tuxedo-striped shirt, tone-in-tone corsetry atop a crisp collared shirt, or the swathing cinch of white cotton dress – all bolstered iterations of this boundless basic.

White shirts

As for Vogue Scandinavia's favourite finds on the regional spring/summer 2023 runways, we find an ensue of simple and sophisticated pieces that can be dressed both up and down. Take Danish brand Day Birger et Mikkelsen's midi shirt dress, for example. When worn with the perfect shoes, this easy pairing is a two-part ensemble that packs a fashionable punch.. Then there's Swedish Hope who have truly harnessed the power of tailoring with its take on the classic white shirt – whether fitted or flared.

Accessories

The best part about basing your look on an elevated basic? The various ways we can accessories it. A blank canvas of sorts, this piece presents endless opportunities spanning curated classics and eye-catching statements. As for our verdict on how to wear it, we say stick with the simple things. Little Liffner brings you not only the perfect belt to cinch your waist, but also a transitional bag which transcends both seasons and events. If you want to add a little sparkle to your ensemble, look no further than Sophie by Sophie's chain link bracelet.
